Clock House Brewing releasing “Morning Nitecap” coffee sour Friday 3/5!

Clock House is back at with another release! This Friday they will be releasing “Morning Nitecap” coffee sour! This will be a draft only release at the brewery, here are the details for this:

We love pushing the boundaries of innovation. For this small project we partnered up with Dash coffee roasters to create a simple but complex sour. We infused a small portion of our sour base with carefully selected Kenyan coffee that was roasted on the lighter side. Thus accentuating the tropical fruit character of this particular bean. We chose this bean alongside with our friends because we felt it paired well with our already fruit forward sour base. We then added vanilla to marry the coffee and beer together. Creating a very complex yet familiar character. Roasty nose, with a tropical sweet mid palate, and a familiar coffee aftertaste.Draft Only Release on Friday, March 5th at 3 PM.

RETURNING!!! Sweep the Leg (Rice Lager, 4.5%) Utilizing a clean fermenting Kveik yeast for this “lager” might be deemed cheating by some, but we say do whatever it takes to win.
